New IP Office Practise


The IP Registry in Nigeria will no longer tolerate delays in responding to trade mark registration oppositions. According to the circular, the Registry will not grant an extension of time more than once and not for a longer period than 30 days.

Further, in respect of registered designs, the Registry now requires applicants to describe the novelty in their design applications. FORM 2 must forthwith contain the name(s) of the signatory who signs on behalf of the company or Agent submitting applications to the Registry.
